"T" is for Teachers

A Teachers Appreciation Day gift from buddy boy's class.

Filled with a memories book made by the kids, beautiful flowers (annuals in individual pots so the teachers can plant in their gardens) and a well deserved card.

The caddies are a larger version of the ones I made here.

Once the flowers are planted the teachers can use the caddies for shoes, magazines, dried flowers, anything really.

The sweet little memories book was the idea of another class mom (Rosemarie for those school folks reading).

Each student made a page with their own artwork and little thoughts of thanks.

Some drew pictures, used stickers, collage, and actual pictures of themselves:

The books are a perfect compelation of all the kids in the class, something the teachers can look back on to remember each student.

A nice way to say thank you in appreciation for all the teachers do.
